Today’s Hot Trailer: Michael Shannon raises a family and kills people for money.
They say it's always the nice ones that are discovered to have done bad things, and that sentiment rings true for the first trailer for The Iceman, the drama thriller which chronicles the life of notorious contract killer Richard "The Iceman" Kuklinski. Played by Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) in the movie, Kuklinski claimed to have murdered over 100 men between 1964 and 1986 while maintaining a suburban life with a wife and kids.
The Iceman is premiering at the Venice Film Festival, so Milennium Films has released the first trailer for the movie, which also stars Winona Ryder (Black Swan) as Deborah, Kuklinski's wife, and Chris Evans as Kuklinski's mentor, Robert "Mr. Softee" Pronge. That role was originally cast with James Franco, who nevertheless makes an appearance in the movie, seemingly as one of Kuklinski's victims.
Directed by Ariel Vromen (Rx), The Iceman co-stars Ray Liotta as Kuklinski’s boss, mobster Roy Demeo. the movie is also screening at the Toronto International Film Festival next month and will likely get a domestic release date after playing in those two festivals.
